45 Years of ‘Being Christian’:

Rowan Williams at General Seminary

Monday February 11, 2019

 

General Seminary’s annual Paddock Lectures, in conjunction with Convocation and the conferral of honorary degrees to Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury and Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church.

 
 

In 1974, the 23-year-old graduate student Rowan Williams travelled to General Seminary in New York City for his first lecture overseas in the United States. Through the next 45 years, Williams has visited the seminary several times as priest, professor, and Archbishop of Canterbury, and returns to Chelsea Square on February 11, 2019.  

The former Archbishop of Canterbury will lead “45 Years of ‘Being Christian’: Rowan Williams at General Seminary” in the seminary’s annual Paddock Lectures. The lectures will feature his bestselling catechetical work, “Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer” in addition to his reflections on a life of ministry, academia, and ecclesiastical leadership.

Following the Paddock Lectures on Monday, the seminary will host Convocation in the historic Chapel of the Good Shepherd, which will include the conferral of honorary degrees on Williams as well as Michael B. Curry, the Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church. Curry will preach the homily during the service.
